November @ #UWMSocial

By Taylor Strickland, Digital Communications Intern

During the season of thankfulness, we all like to reflect on the things we value most. Here at #UWMSocial, this list includes the amazing content we get to post each month and our wonderful Panther family for the engagement they bring to us. Let’s look back at some of the content we were most grateful for in November.

We were excited to announce a partnership with The Mobile Market this month, which will bring healthy food options to students who may not have the time or be able to afford the groceries they need. Our students were excited as well, earning the post 14,457 impressions, 43 shares, 31 comments and 202 reactions.

Pick 'n Save and Hunger Task Force, Inc. have teamed up to bring fresh and healthy food to the community at a fraction of retail prices. The Mobile Market will visit UWM every month through the school year.
